How long will it take to get rid of my possum problem?
Possum removal and control is a process. It won’t happen overnight but it will happen! Your communication is vital as you are our eyes & ears. You can expect much activity the first couple of nights. Depending how many possums you have and how long they have been residing in your roof will determine the length of time it will take. On average we find between 3 – 7 days.
How do you know its possums and not rats?
Possums and rats have the same destructive and non-hygienic element to their behaviour. Upon inspection of your property we will be able to ascertain by smell and sight – faecal matter is often the evidence we need. Also their activities differ. With rats you will often hear them at all hours, and often make more scratching noises. With Possums there is no mistaking, they are loud, and they are nocturnally active.
